Touareg Prices And Specification Are Announced | Part Two

The range-topping Touareg V10 TDI is highly specified. Joining the list of standard features are Continuous Damping Control (CDC) air suspension (optional on other models); bi-Xenon headlights; central locking with keyless access and engine start; electrical adjustment and memory for seat belt height, steering column, mirrors and front seats; parking distance control; multifunction computer with 5-inch colour screen; and enhanced stereo system with 11 speakers. Outside, the V10 TDI features 18 inch alloy wheels, a chrome air intake and front fog lights.

Despite the high specification of the range, drivers are able to customise further their Touaregs with a range of factory and retailer-fit options. These include satellite navigation; power closing of the tailgate; ski sack with load-through provision; sunblind for rear screen; heated windscreen; and tiptronic operation mounted on the steering column.

In addition, every customer is offered the chance to take part in a complimentary drive day, held at one of six locations across the country. This allows all Touareg owners to experience the impressive capabilities and technology of the vehicle.

The Touareg is Volkswagen’s first step into the luxury class. During the summer, it will be joined by the Phaeton, a large luxury saloon with a range of advanced engines including a 420 PS 6.0-litre W12.
